I own a few guns, but dont have the money or space to buy a safe or fancy cabinet. Currently storing them in Hard cases under my bed. Besides oiling them up, anything else i can do to fight rust during long term storage? thinking of buying one of these silicone gun socks (pic related), i hear they keep moisture out. any other methods that can help?

Take them out of the cases

Lanolin or other waxes.
If you use Ed's Red with the added lanolin it is very rust resistant. Straight lanolin works as well.

I use those silicone gun socks and they are absolute life savers. I live in an incredibly humid area where guns with poor/average finishes will develop surface rust overnight very easily (have had it happen to an SMLE and a O/U shotgun). With these socks and some gun oil though I have never had a problem.

Also silicon spray. I have to leave my guns for ~3 months at a time and I always soak them in this shit, just have to wipe it off when I get them out again but I've never even seen a speck of rust. You can also get dehumidifiers for safes.

I have all my guns in silicone socks, ever since I found tarnish on my Benelli's barrel(thought it was straight up rust spots, scared the shit out of me), as soon as I get done shooting, I bore snake them, wipe them down with a CLP wipe, and stick them in the gun sock.

Get them out of the cases. Foam traps moisture.


For long term, use Renaissance Wax. It is the best long term rust preventative.


Other than that, a good spray with barricade, and a gun sock.

Not OP but do you think my guns will be safe if I store them in a hot attack in an area that's humid such as eastern alabama?
